Stonebwoy and I go way back – Amaarae
Ghanaian-American singer-songwriter Ama Serwah Genfi, popularly known as Amaarae, recently took to Twitter to share a heartwarming revelation about her long-standing relationship with Ghanaian dancehall superstar Stonebwoy. The tweet shed light on their deep-rooted connection, dating back to Amaarae’s earliest days in the music industry. She also expressed her regret for missing out on a collaboration opportunity on Stonebwoy’s album 5TH Dimension.
In a reply to a tweet, Amaarae revealed that her association with Stonebwoy goes way back to 2013 when she had her very first radio interview. This snippet of information illuminates the history of their friendship, a bond that has seemingly strengthened over the years through their mutual passion for music.
For any aspiring artist, the first radio interview is an unforgettable milestone. It marks the moment when a talented individual steps into the spotlight, eager to share their artistry with the world. For Amaarae, this moment was made even more significant as she shared it with the internationally renowned Stonebwoy.
Both artists have since come a long way in their careers, with each garnering a dedicated fanbase and critical acclaim for their unique musical styles. Amaarae’s dreamy melodies and genre-blending compositions have earned her recognition as a rising star in the alternative music scene, while Stonebwoy’s distinctive dancehall beats have propelled him to global fame.
In her tweet, Amaarae lamented missing the chance to collaborate on Stonebwoy’s 5TH Dimension album. Although she appeared on his EOM project, their collaboration could have been even more extensive had their busy schedules allowed for it. The music industry can be notoriously demanding, and it is not uncommon for artists’ timelines to clash, hindering potential creative partnerships.
Despite the missed opportunity on the “5TH Dimension”, Amaarae remains hopeful for future collaborations with Stonebwoy. She expressed her desire to join forces with him again.
Amaarae’s journey as a Ghanaian-American artist represents the power of music in transcending cultural boundaries. Born in the United States with Ghanaian heritage, she embodies the spirit of a global artist, blending her cultural influences seamlessly into her music.
Stonebwoy’s music, on the other hand, has become a symbol of Ghana’s vibrant music scene, captivating audiences worldwide with its infectious beats and authentic storytelling. Together, Amaarae and Stonebwoy showcase the rich diversity of African talent and the diaspora’s impact on global music.
